Ok yesterday i went in to pick up a pair of Hd555s and just as i went up to the counter to pay i noticed they were the 120ohm version.I dont have an amp at the moment and it will be a few months before i get one,i just use my PC,iriver and HIFI as a sourse.
Anyway to make a long story short online i went online and found a pair of Hd595 50ohm for the same price as i would have paid in the local store(overprced but just convinient).I checked to see if they had the Hd555 but only stock the 120ohm version.
So basically would you recommend i get the Hd595(50ohm) for unamped listening over the Hd555(120ohm)?
Thanks in advance.
